Could not have been more perfect

Reviewed on 10/19/2013 Anna

I looked at reviews for at least a dozen different bakeries in the St. Louis area, and visited a couple. My dad is a chef and he recommended one place, but it seemed kind of boring. My next stop was The Cakery Bakery. The instant my mom and I walked in, we were greeted by one of... Read More the owners and treated with courtesy and friendliness. The prices were more than fair and the options for decorations were nearly boundless. These people do traditional, whimsical, romantic, you name it. On top of all that, we sampled a bunch of their flavors, and I've got to tell you, they make the best wedding cake I've ever tasted! We got a simple, three-tiered vanilla buttercream cake with vanilla buttercream frosting that we had them do "plaster"-style instead of smooth. They didn't try to up-sell and they were very attentive to our preferences. On the big day, the cake was perfect. I would recommend The Cakery to anyone!

Wait a year for the top tier -- we couldn't wait more than a week!

The Cakery was wonderful to work with and our wedding cake was DELICIOUS -- so delicious, in fact, that when we got back from our honeymoon, we pulled the top tier (which the venue had to hide so that it wasn't devoured) out of the freezer. We had a specific design in mind and... Read More brought in a picture - the cake that they designed to emulate the picture was even more attractive than the picture that we gave to them. They also made two very cute penguin cake toppers for us out of fondant. Deciding which flavor of cake to choose was the most difficult -- in the end, because we couldn't decide we ended up having a tier of red velvet, a tier of strawberry, and a tier of lemon (our favorite).

The Cakery Takes the Cake!

We went to several bakeries when we were looking for a wedding cake vendor (this is one of the fun parts of planning for a wedding). Most of them were OK or above average, but The Cakery rose above the rest. Their bakery is clean and has a professional look to it. They are... Read More willing to work with you to incorporate any custom designs or ideas that you may have. However, the best part of this place is, of course, the cakes! They have some of the best wedding cake I have ever tasted. Just try the lemon cake! Granted, The Cakery is more expensive than some of the other bakeries in town. However, you get what you pay for. Go with The Cakery. You won't be disappointed.

We decided to plan our wedding in 30 days...crazy yes, but we went for it. Almost 2 weeks into the planning we decided to go for the wedding cake. Originally I was just gonna go to Sam's Club and pick out a cake. But then I started to email various bakeries. The Cakery was the... Read More only one to email me back. They welcomed me in that week and I took home some samples. They all were yummy, but the rum cake was the one. We thought it was amazing and we paired it with raspberry fruit filling. A few days later we went back to pick out a design. And we even received a small discount since our wedding was during the off-season. Our cake was beautiful and everyone loved it!!! It was delicious. Thank you so much for a great finishing touch to our whirlwind wedding. I highly recommend them, you won't be disappointed.

If I had to do it all over again, I'd absolutely book the Cakery. The staff was so friendly and more than willing to help whether it was in person or via phone or e-mail. We brought in a photo of what we wanted our wedding cake to look like and they absolutely nailed it. We... Read More dropped off our cake stand, topper, and decor from the florist the week of our wedding and they delivered and set everything up without a hitch. The cake and buttercream are unbelievable - it is actually hard to pick a flavor. We are still getting compliments from our guests on our wedding cake months later. You absolutely will not regret booking the Cakery!

The Cakery is by far THE BEST bakery in St. Louis. Their cakes taste AMAZING!!! We tried another bakery just down the road from them initially who came off like very big snobs and who repeatedly told us that their cake was superior and blah blah blah....honestly their cake... Read More tasted like cardboard! We then went to try the cakery and we were completely blown away by how good their samples were and how down to earth and nice everyone in the store was. Our cake turned out beautiful for our wedding and we could not have been happier! Thank you Cakery!

We did several cake tastings in trying to find the right bakery, but once we tried the Cakery, we knew it was the one!

The Cakery delivered amazing cupcakes and cake for our wedding reception -- delicious, freshly made from great ingredients, and beautifully designed within our budget. The staff were patient throughout the taste-testing period, and were helpful in providing ideas for designs... Read More that matched our theme/color and stayed within budget, and delivered exactly as expected on the wedding day. The cakes were DELICIOUS - very moist, the right amount of sweetness, and beautifully decorated. We were so pleased, and our guests devoured the treats, and our photographer loved photographing the whole set-up. However, we do recommend keeping meticulous notes on everything since they are so busy that sometimes staff get mixed up about details. We were contacted twice about payment (as late as one week before the wedding) even though we had paid everything in full two months prior. Overall, we would highly recommend The Cakery Bakery!

You know a cake is amazing, when after it's been sitting for 2 days, it's still incredible moist as if they just pulled it out of the oven. This place was incredible.

We got our wedding cake from the Cakery. The cake was so beautiful!! The chocolate chip cake with chocolate ganache filling was a HUGE hit!!! I highly recommend!! My only complaint was that when scheduling our design consultation it had to be rescheduled TWICE due to the... Read More owner's schedule. She teaches classes and was unaware of her schedule for teaching so when it came out they called and rescheduled once and then she called and apologized and rescheduled it a second time. She did apologize and it all worked out, I just wish there had been better care in rescheduling us the first time. That being said I would go back to the Cakery tomorrow and actually encouraged my brother to check them out for his wedding.

WOW WOW WOW is all I can say about the Cakery. I myself love to bake, so knew finding a delicious and beautiful cake was a must for our wedding.

The Cakery is one of the most highly recommended bakeries in St. Louis and there's no surprise why. We live out of town, but we booked the Cakery just based off their reputation and communication via phone and email. The design process was laid-back, but organized. Our design...

All of the flavors we tried were so delicious that we had a hard time deciding on our cake flavors.

We had the Cakery Bakery do our cake for our June 2016 wedding and we could not have been happier. Starting with our tasting and ending with the wedding (well hopefully the first anniversary) they were amazing. I am not normally a wedding cake fan, my mom decorated wedding... Read More cakes as I was growing up and most that I had tasted did not live up to hers. The Cakery proved my wrong! When we did our tasting it was hard to narrow it down, they were all so so so delicious. We decided to go with a chocolate chip cake with mint frosting and a white cake with raspberry filling, both were amazing! I never expected to receive so many compliments on my cake and I heard them all night long! Not to mention the design on the cake was amazing. We went with a simple and elegant design but it blew me away! I would highly recommend their services!
